DOSREAD is at Version 1.4; and DOSLS is Version 1.2.

I've included both DOSLS and DOSREAD in this package, although DOSLS
has only changed in its' error message output since the last time that
I posted it in comp.unix.amiga; DOSREAD has changed more substantially:
it wouldn't read more than the first file header block so only files up
to 36K in length could be copied!  This was found and fixed quickly. :-)
The files are simple uuencoded binaries (source will not be distributed).

Please feel free to send any bug reports; enhancements are not likely since
anything major will be left for the filesystem implementation.  This code
carries around a lot of baggage because it runs in user-space and I'm
looking forward to a kernel-mode version.
